Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide for the MEN in Your Life :: I Adore What I Love Blog :: #iadorewhatiloveNot to toot my own horn but ladies, this might be the best men’s gift guide I’ve ever put together for the blog – and I’ve shared A LOT of men’s gift guides in my life! But like – this one is seriously the best! I found 16 {yes!!! 16!!!} unique, cool, trendy, basically all really amazing gifts that any guy would be SO into! Don’t believe me? It’s even Isaiah-approved {my husband!} and he’s picky with gifts so right there that it’s a good sign! With that, below I’m breaking it down… take a look!


1. Yeti Cooler
This is the high-class cooler that your man is going to flip for! While it’s not cheap, it can literally keep food and drinks cold FOR DAYS, is waterproof, and resistant to mildew, punctures and UV Rays. WOW!

2. Allbirds
Dubbed the most comfortable shoes in the world, these can double as slippers and they look cool too! {sidenote: got them for my dad for his bday and he’s obsessed!!}

3. Nintendo: NES Classic Edition
For the gamer guy!!! But also, for the 80s and 90s baby who with always have a special place in his heard for Mario! It comes preloaded with 30 games like Donkey Kong, Zelda and Super Mario Bros. OK, I WANT IT FOR MYSELF #allthememories

4. Dog Print Salvatore Ferragamo Silk Tie
My husband has few of these ties because they are so cool and fun! This print is definitely for the dog lover but what I love is that it’s discreet and you can’t really tell it’s adorned with little fidos until you look just a little closer =)

5. Tile Pro
For the man who loses his sh*t hahaha…. AKA most of them! Hahahah again. But yes, this will allow your man to find lost items easily and quickly!

6. Sonos One with Smart Speaker and Built-In Alexa
Perfect for the office. Any guy would go wild to display this on their desk and have Alexa at his fingertips.

7. Canada Goose Aviator Hat with Fur Trim
The warmest, coziest, winter gift that’s really freaking trendy at the same time. My son, Brody, has THIS faux fur version from Appaman. So similar and so cool! Would be toooo cute to see daddy/son twinning, am I right?!

8. Mophie Wireless Charging Base
Just put your phone on top and watch it charge up in no time. It literally charges on contact. Genius!!!

9. Lightweight Gloves
Really, these gloves are for runners but with all their cool features, anyone can – and should – wear them! They’re perfectly stretchy, sweat-wicking, and SUPER soft!!! Plus, naturally breathable which is always a good thing!

10. Grillbot Automatic Grill Cleaner
I must say, my husband is really good about cleaning our grill BUT it’s annoying! And if there’s something that can do it for you – why wouldn’t you just go that route?! Also, right now it’s half off!!! SCORE!!!!

11. The Rail Slide Sandals
Are you traveling over the holidays? If so these would make for the most perfect pool shoes!!! They’re super chic with a modernistic style that would catch the eye of any guy!!

12. 5-in-2 Multi-Game Set
Have you heard? Game sets are BACK! This one is super special as it includes backgammon, chess, cribbage, dominos, and a deck of playing cards. Trust me, the guy in your life will love it!

13. Carry-On Cocktail Kit
Comes in 7 different versions, each a different favorite drink!! It’s TSA approved and would make the perfect gift for the on-the-go traveler. Just add alcohol and enjoy!

14. Cotton Jogger Pants with fun prints!
OMG I heartttt these fun printed jogger pants!!! From pizza trees to avocados to sharks and more, there is definitely a print for everyone!

15. Goodthreads Men’s V-Neck T-Shirts
My husband’s favorite t-shirts in the world and each is only $14!!!!!! They come in 8 different solid colors and they are super soft with the perfect fit!

16. Wine Cork States Board
Collecting your wine corks is a thing and this is hands down the coolest way to do it. Period the end!!!
